abstract

  • Ruptured thoracic aneurysms can be repaired with a gratifying rate of salvage. Rapid diagnosis and triage for repair is necessary to avoid progressive deterioration into shock. The incidence of myocardial infarction, and the mortality associated with this event, underscores the need for aggressive cardiac evaluation in the elective thoracic aneurysm patient. The size at rupture also emphasizes the need for earlier referral for elective aneurysm repair.
